A workshop for students will take place on the first day of the ISES Solar World Congress 2017 in Abu Dhabi. The workshop "Connecting young professionals with the future of solar" is open for all registered participants of the conference.
The global energy system is adopting solar energy faster than ever before. However, this energy transformation will only be sustainable in the future if young generations entering the workforce have the skills to maintain the transition. The exponential growth in demand for low-cost solar energy mirrors major trends of the digital era, such as the internet and mobile phones, which will likewise revolutionize the world’s energy industries. While solar products are available today, the know-how to plan, install, operate, and service such systems is limited. We have an opportunity to connect the millennial generation with current solar energy leaders, to prepare, train and mentor them for the challenges and rewards of the industry. National and local training opportunities are one way to transfer the capacity from the current to future generations, and these opportunities must be built collaboratively by industry professionals and youth ready to enter the workforce.
